Scott Spiker was elected alderman of the 13th District, the Garden District, in a special election in the summer of 2019. This was the culmination of a decade and a half of service to the district, first as a volunteer and later as legislative aide to the previous alderman.
Through this service, Alderman Spiker worked closely with every neighborhood association and business group in the district. He founded and served as the first president of the Wilson Park Neighborhood Association, served on the advisory board of the Garden District Neighborhood Association, headed the 4th of July Committee for the annual celebration in the area, and served as a liaison to the organizers of the first annual “Howl on Howell” event involving local area businesses.
Alderman Spiker is a firm believer in the maxim that “the government closest to the people serves the people best,” and has sought to translate his background in neighborhood organizing into a firm commitment to transparent government in which communication is king.
Prior to working on local governmental issues, Alderman Spiker’s background was in education. He was educated at the University of Wisconsin at Madison and Cornell University, and taught at both the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee and at Marquette University.
Alderman Spiker and his wife, Noelle, are proud residents of the Wilson Park neighborhood where they have raised their two sons.
